For those of you that don’t know, my Mountain Man’s birthday is St. Patrick’s Day. And for his special day, he decided he wanted to spend the day climbing. With me. I’m pretty terrible at bouldering – like so bad that it isn’t even fun.

So, let’s quickly catch up on the past few months and I’ll briefly touch on what’s to come in the immediate future!

Hogwarts and Hashbrowns: A Wizardly Drag Brunch

AKA, The Best Day of My Life.

In honor of today being the anniversary of the Battle of Hogwarts, a solemn day of remembrance for us Potter fans, I decided to lighten the mood by sharing with you one of the best days of my life. That day was the day I went to Hogwarts and Hashbrowns: A Wizardly Drag Brunch. Some genius decided to combine three of my favorite things: brunch, drag queens, and Harry Potter.
